Shabby Little Table With Plaster Appliques


This table needed a little shabby loving




I brushed it with Heirloom white paint.  I had a gallon of heirloom white paint made by having the cap of the Rustoleum Heirloom white spray paint color matched at the paint department


Spray paint can get expensive, so when I can, I brush!


I sanded to make it chippy and added my
homemade plaster applique roses


And put it in my booth at Orange Tree Antiques for $45 and.......... 


.....It sold immediately...Yea!



Are you getting your dress forms ready?
  
If you have never joined a linky party, HERE is an excellent step by step tutorial by "Beneath My Heart", complete with pictures!


Do you remember me saying there was something I wanted to do that was on my "Bucket list"?  Well, I'm going to do it!  I'll tell you all about it next post!


Happy Creating
Carol

Oh isn't that just SWEET I love the Little added touch.. It's AMAZING what a difference it made to the little table.... Yes, I am trying to get Miss Minachin (that's what the girls named my dress form ) ready for the Party.... I hope that she behaves... :)

Oh, I love this new shabby table you have here.
I actually am the mother of 8 (all ours together) and 7 of them are married and are all parents. We did get 4 additional this past year as my son remarried someone with 4 kids and he has 3 of his own. This is how we have 18 grandkids, and we do have another one on the way! We littereally can't stop looking at this wall. We love every one of them so much!

Something Special said...

Oh and I will be linking up to your party and posting on my sidebar. Thanks for letting me know!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Well of course it sold! That's just darling and the roses really set it off. Do you have a tutorial on how you did them?

Debbie said...

I just tried to post a comment and it went POOF. I dare not repeat myself for fear it eventually shows up. THEN, I'll look really blonde.

I'll just say this time that I love the makeover and am not surprised that someone snatched it right up.

Trying again...

Katie said...

Yes...You must make an assortment of these plaster appliques. They will sell like crazy at the Fancy Flea! I will buy some ;-) And you were right... I was actually scheduled to work on Monday/the holiday, but someone needed to swap, so I did...XoXo
